    I don't know if this is going to work but I saw this on Facebook, hopefully the link will work.

    Apologies if it doesn't.

    DC has sent these pics of said car.

    That engine installation looks a tad tight.

    "That engine installation looks a tad tight."

    It might be 'tight' - but there looks like plenty of room for proper air filters on those SUs - unlike the B-series/MGB set up.
    [I don't like running an engine with no filtration]

    I agree, but Sucarb.co.uk do a nice short ram pipe with a mesh guard. If nothing else they make a wonderful sound.

    1984 Marlin Roadster SWB.
    1800TC, Unleaded ported head, stage 2 cam. Ford Type 9 gearbox, Dolomite Sprint rear axle fitted with MGF disc brakes.
    Three core radiator, Renault Clio vented front discs.
    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.
